Would usually do a little more research before buying something like this but am on the road. Is Costco selling anything decent? Looks like they've got an Olympus TG-3?

Liked that AW100 but lost it a while ago and it hasn't turned up, so need to buy a new camera. See they're replaced the 100 with a 110 and 120. What else is out there now?

The way I read that, the guidelines are being treated like sex education. Better not to promote it, or even to discuss how to do it safely. Don't think that means it's going to become illegal.
